The PS3 will not play the new (BD) dvd I just hired .And i have never had this problem befor. Its askin me to renew my encryption key and says something about system software up date. I am not connected to...


All Blue Ray players need to be updated from time to time to keep up with the growing technology of Blue Ray. PS3 is the same way. It is asking you to update your PS3 in order to play the disc. On the back of the PS3 is a Ethernet port (looks like an over sized phone jack) connect this to your internet (modem) and it will update your encryption key and software needed to play Blue Ray discs. Here is a link for that as well.

To perform the update you require a active internet connection or you might just take the unit to the store for this update which I consider better.

Good luck.

Bought a blue ray movie to try out on ps3 now it asks for an encryption key, wth? i don't hook my ps3 to inter net, but asking for a system software update to renew encryption key to play blue ray


-= Renew PS3 Encryption Key =-

If i was you i wouden update. the latest update sony have provided is causing alot of problems, such as not being able to read blue-ray movies and games. (3.00/3.01)

I know you dont see it this way, but i acaully see you as a very lucky person that you havent updated your machine yet, my ps3 dont work anymore after i updated, or it does work, but it just cant read any blueray games or movies.

But if you have a ps3 slim you probaly wont have this problem, its more older models that suffer under this bug. :(

i dont know what your current firmware is, but if its way below 2.80, then your still in the safe zone, cuz if you own a usb memory stick you can transfer the 2.80 update to ( USB-ROOT\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP ) and then unplug it from your computer and insert it into your ps3 and then try the update from local storeage.

i hope you can use this :o)
